Free Music: The Unusuals
My buddy Eileen over @ Modiba hipped me to these up-and-coming New Yorkers yesterday. Having only listened through their latest EP a couple times, I can't claim to be an expert. What I will say is that the music is fresh, relevant, and uses AutoTune in such a tasteful way, it gives a big EF U to Jay-Z's new single, D.O.A.
The songs seem to do a bit of genre-bending, having folky structures and harmonies with boomy drum samples and ripping synths. Perhaps its what would happen if a few freak-folkers made love with Kraftwerk on the sidewalk of Bedford Avenue (quite an unsanitary place to give birth for sure, but you get the idea).
The band has been kind enough to make both of their EPs available for free download. So what are you waiting for? It's free, it's autotuned, it puts a goofy smile on your face.
